I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s time to catch up with your reading, and crochet can help you do it.

Although crocheters often often read as their other major hobby, there is little overlap between the two… until now that is. Indeed, one of the most enjoyable ways to enjoy your favorite pastimes is to combine them. Thus, here are some ideas for an animal bookmark that you can crochet and enjoy when reading. Of course, these placeholders will also make great presents, whether you give them on their own or as an addition to a book. Either way, you’re in good stead with these fun, wonderful and attractive knickknacks.

Giraffe Bookmark

Although unusual, this animal bookmark is an almost obvious choice. After all, the giraffe’s long, thin neck is a no-brainer for transforming into the bookmark’s ribbon.
